|Further details outdoors|
The jewel in the crown of these apartments are its grounds offering a feast of perfumes and colours and its swimming pool, is completely private and secluded but still allows wonderful views
Both the pool and the gardens have been designed to blend sympathetically with the land and are planted in a typical puglian style, wild and natural rather than formally landscaped.
Surprisingly even the noonday sun is never too much because of its fantastic hilltop position. The heat is always tempered by the gentle winds whispering in over the Adriatic, allowing you to laze under the palm umbrellas all day long.
This pool is ideal for all the family as each section and the stairs are gated for security and peace of mind and everyone can enjoy the Jacuzzi jets set into the steps, giving a soft massage after a refreshing swim.
A mural based on the puglian landscapes has been designed and painted by the artist Sam Oyelowo. It stands proud and striking, enhancing the jutting rock of the mountain, that bears the weight of the beautiful apartments above.
There is a good selection of sun loungers around the pool area to choose from and also tables and chairs where you can eat lunch. In the evening as the cicadas start to sing, the lights enhance the old olive trees, allowing you to enjoy a cocktail as the light dims for another day.
You may sit and eat together in the main house, with a beautiful family group table for 18 on the main balcony looking out over the view of the sea, next to large family kitchen with further dining area, also there is a large living room where you can enjoy the entertainment system with sky television and free wifi and a combination of 100's of Movies and abundant library with books for all ages.
This delightful living room has four large sofas and log burning stove and will accommodate all guests comfortably. All separate apartments have large LCD screens with Italian sky and a multitude of DVD's, CD's and Books for all families with a good selection of comfortable living and dining areas
The Puglia/Molise region
Particularly thanks to its endless beaches, Mediterranean climate and exquisite cuisine. villa Silvana in its prime position , literally in the centre of all the interesting tourist attractions provide so much to enjoy of Puglia, which has a landscape that is dripping with History from roman times onwards which is evident in its extraordinary array of architecture. The Normans endowed Puglia with splendidly ornate cathedrals and the baroque exuberance of some towns are testament to the Spanish legacy. But if there is one symbol of Puglia that stands out it's the imposing castles and mystical Trulli that are built all over the province.
Puglia is the land of the grape. It is the source of 80% of Europe's pasta and most of Italy fish. It produces more wine than Germany and more olive oil than all of the other regions of Italy combined. Apulia has forests of twisted pines, ancient olives and huge old carob trees, acres of vineyards, losing ground to cherry and peach orchards. Junipers, sage and rosemary grow near the sea and because of its Mediterranean position plenty of tropical plants grow happily next to fields of grains and vegetables.
Here the tourist industry still remains wonderfully primitive, which is amazing considering how much this region has to offer.
Villa Silvana's apartments are ideally situated for exploring Puglia's beautiful architecture, wonderful tourist attractions and the interior landscapes.
Art lovers can discover original art work both in the villa and around the neighbouring towns and villages, gourmets can taste fresh puglian food bought to their tables by the local chef or in the surrounding baroque and antique centre’s and sip excellent fresh home made wine on their private verandas looking out to sea or taste other delicious Puglia wines in the local “enoteca’s”, sportsmen can enjoy activities such as cycling in the hills, fishing and golf and all can relax in our beautiful Villa
There is an abundance of delightful towns all within close proximity to Villa Silvana. They all have an authentic Italian feel with year round street festa's, weekly market days and charming old centers dating back hundreds of years.
Only a few kilometers, down the hill, is Fasano, a beautiful ancient town which was subject to the Knights of Malta for many years. The hills (Selva di fasano) are a naturally wooded area rich in oak trees and perfect for stunning country walks.
A few kilometers drive into the interior are the towns of Ostuni, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Locorotondo and Alberobello.
Ostuni is an exquisite town known as the 'White City' because of its white washed streets surrounded by medieval walls, a visit is highly recommended. Martina Franca is a town with a tangible Moorish flavour, it has a medieval center adorned with some of the most subtle examples of baroque architecture that you'll find.
Cisternino and Locorotondo are both small charming towns, with whitewashed historic centers both obviously influenced by the Greeks. Also you can view the Valle d'itria from here, where some of puglias prettiest landscapes can be seen.
Of course the Trulli have always been an important tourist attraction for Puglia, their intrinsic beauty has capture the heart and soul of many. Alberobello is also only a short drive from the apartments, there is over a thousand of these magical limestone dwellings, standing out against the bright blue sky, they create a beautiful exotic scene, almost like a fairy tale, it is impossible to see anything like it, anywhere else in the world.
Also just a few kilometers away is the zoo-safari Fasanolandia. This is the greatest animal park in Italy, where 1000's of animals can be observed, kept free, in a completely protected area. There is also a dolphinarium and an amusement park for all ages.
If you are a lover of long leisurely lunches and relaxing dinners, where the wine flows, the food just keeps coming and the bill is surprisingly cheap, then you’ll be glad to know that the Restaurants, Trattoria’s, Osteria’s, Pizzeria’s, bars and cafes in Puglia are not only incredibly reasonable, but well renowned for their freshness and taste. The food, its preparation and consumption is the focal point of Italian life, so when you eat out in any establishment you will never feel like you’ve eaten merely to refuel but rather to experience a sensory delight. We can recommend some fantastic restaurants, some even within walking distance.
Whether you want the latest Gucci designs, antiques or just a good rummage around a local market, there is something for everyone in Puglia. Because of Villa Silvana’s prime location, strutting your stuff in Passegiata with the locals or being seen to be seen and enjoying the shops, is easy, as the apartments are near many of these small towns, that come alive at night.
There are many markets on in the surrounding villages that we can recommend
There is a market in every town every week
Cisternino is on Monday, Monopoli and Noci are on Tuesday, Fasano and Poligano al Mare are on Wednesday, Alberobello is on Thursday, Locorotondo is on Friday, Ostuni is on Saturday and Torre Canne and Savelletri are on Sunday.
In the summer months Martina Franca hosts the famous “Itria Valley Festival” with theatres, concerts and Opera attracting music lovers from all over the world and you can also find many traditional festivals and concerts in most villages, almost every week in the summer. Our own village has two summer festivals in August and many other religious festivals throughout the year.

"Villa Silvana...nel cuore della Puglia"
La nostra settimana a Villa Silvana è stata una della più belle della nostra vita...vista mozzafiato, posizione centrale rispetto a tutte le bellezze del territorio.
Si raggiunge il mare e lo zoo in pochi minuti e tutti i luoghi da visitare distano davvero poco.
La villa è grande, confortevole, ha una piscina privata immersa nella natura bellissima!
Gli appartamenti sono arredati con gusto e sono completi di ogni confort!
In comitiva è davvero una pacchia!!!ospita fino a 20 persone e la villa è praticamente tutta tua...
Davvero una vacanza indimentibile!
Torneremo di sicuro.
Grazie a Susanna e Michael!

""WE WILL DEFINITELY GO AGAIN""
Our family stayed in this Villa in June when the weather was not so hot as July and August but just perfect for us. We found this Villa in a beautiful location with wonderful views right out to the sea from all the different terraces and balconies and eating outside on super mosaic tables was very luxurious. This Villa was great for all our family with plenty of space in large rooms and the marvellous swimming pool is absolutely great and enormous and the children loved every minute in the water. We didn't want to cook one day and used the Chef Services and was very impressed with loads of fresh yummy food. The beds and linens are very comfortable and clean and the décor is very tasteful. Help and Advice from the owners is to be commended. We feel our holiday was one of the best we have ever had and hard to beat for value. WE LOOK FORWARD TO GOING AGAIN

"A peaceful and luxurious haven"
I have stayed in many self catering apartments over the years and none of them have come close to the one we stayed in at Villa Silvana. Beautifully decorated, with lovely antique, furniture giving it that personal touch. Extremely well equipped kitchen, good BBQ and fabulous outdoor space with glorious views of the city of Fasano. The pool area is second to none and can't ever get over crowded due to there only being three apartments, so blissfully peaceful and relaxing. There is plenty to do in the local area but you do need a car and there is a great supermarket only a few minutes drive, stocking great seafood, meat and cheese. Puglia is known for its fabulous cuisine and we werent disappointed. All in all a great holiday for a great price and we can't wait to book our next trip.

"Beautiful, relaxing and friendly. A place to return to."
Fantastic and easy to follow directions to get to Villa Silvana. Beautiful views, fabulous sized pool and with 3 apartments over crowding is not an issue. The owners were true to their word we were provided with everything we could need for our 20 month old son, toys, cot, cooling fan etc, which made packing very easy. Spacious outdoors eating areas with BBQ. Great places to visit including a nearby safari park. Would highly recommend Villa Silvana and we will definately be returning in the future.

"Perfect getaway for peace and quiet."
Accomodation was first class, set in beautiful surroundings with stunning views of the valley with acres of old Olive groves and sea. Warm welcome from the hosts Michael and Susan who were very informative about the local places to visit. Breakfast on our own terrace each morning with the stunning views and again each evening watching the sun disappear .
